I have 2 Boston Ferns that I've had for a few years. I repotted them one time to put them in non-draining pots. That was 3 years ago.
I put them outside on a shady patio last summer and brought them into the sun porch/green house for the winter. They've been kind of ratty since then. They have a grey/green color and are not sprouting new fronds. Usually a feeding of acid water will make them bright green and send out new fronds. Not so much now.
I took them out of their pots and they appear to be full of roots. Do ferns get pot-bound? Should I repot them in a bigger pot? Should I throw them out and start with new, little ones?
On the bright side of things, I had one fern under a hanging basket of Impatiens for the winder. I guess a spent flower fell into the fern and sprouted because there's a purple impatien growing in with the fern. Really a cute look!
Thanks in advance.
